Being a musician is all about leaving a legacy. And that’s not about money. That’s about music. If you can’t leave a musical legacy, if you can’t be remembered for what you did, there’s no sense in doing it. It’s not just about making a hit right now, making a few dollars right now, make a lot of dollars right now. It’s about people leaving a stamp that a lot of people are going to remember. – Kim
You know, you can have a lot of potential and you could be thrilling people at a young age. But as you get older, and if you’re really singing it up, you can really turn it on as you get older, because experience means so much.
I’m just saying that because I am older. – Kim

“Now when you say that you’re more of an R&B singer than you once were, was that intentional or was that kind of your natural evolution?”
Kim: Well, if I’m going to sing R&B songs, I’ve got to get a little more churchy.
It’s more about feeling than being an acrobat who plays a zillion notes. – Kim
